Interdiffusion in the face-centered-cubic (fcc) Co-Al binary alloys was studied by the diffusion-couple approach in the temperature range of 1173 K to 1573 K (900 °C to 1300 °C). Interdiffusion coefficients of the fcc Co-Al alloys were then evaluated by using the Sauer- Freise method. The effect of magnetic ordering on the Co-Al interdiffusion was observed at 1273 K (1000 °C) by examining the Arrhenius plots. The interdiffusion data were assessed to develop the atomic mobility for the fcc Co-Al alloys, and their validity was tested by simulating the diffusion-couple experiments.
